Councillor Billy Blanchard-Cooper said the scheme can offer vital funds to initiatives that support people in our town

Chairman of the community resources committee councillor Billy Blanchard-Cooper said: “The past year has placed huge challenges

on the community as a whole and Littlehampton Town Council recognise the importance of this year’s Grant Aid Scheme.

“Now, more than ever, the scheme can offer vital funds to initiatives that support the residents of Littlehampton. It is hoped it will successfully contribute to vital services and activities and support the town in returning to a new normal.”
